Default Tire pressure light

The local dealer puts after market wheels and tires on there new trucks. I bought a 2011 dodge ram 1500 from them and right off the bat the tire pressure light comes on. I brought it in to them and they said it's becuz of the cold weather. I had a 2008 and had aftermarket wheels and the light never came on. What do you think?

If the light is on steady, I think I'd air the tires up to spec when they're cold.

LOL. Well I brought the truck in and they said they were in there. I checked the pressure it was at 35 psi. I bumped it up to 40 and it didn't help. I guess I should ask what the normal operating pressure is. I thought it was 35.

if they did install the correct ones and its still on i would put more air in the tires and i know you said you bumped them up to 40 but did you pull it into a warm place to do that??? i kno with me i was pulling my truck into the shop i work at and aring them up and sure enough a few days later it would come on again so then i filled them outside in the cold and almost froze my fingers off lol but it hasnt came on since so if you didnt do that its worth a shot!!!
